Yuba City, California, Injuries and Wrongful Death
However careful you may be as you go about your daily business, you can’t control the actions of others. Someone is careless, reckless, violent, abusive, or negligent and fails to honor their duty to care toward the public, and you’re injured as a result. It may be a car, truck, pedestrian, bicycle, motorcycle, or boat accident, caused by a driver who is distracted, drunk, aggressive, or simply unconcerned with the law. Perhaps a property owner has not kept up the premises and has allowed a dangerous condition to exist, causing you to trip and fall, resulting in a serious injury or wrongful death, or a defective product has injured you.
There are many ways that someone else’s wrongful act can hurt you or even kill a member of your family. Your life can be changed forever as a result of a serious injury or the wrongful death of someone you love and depend on. The potential financial, emotional, and practical consequences are endless; you could even lose your home or have to declare bankruptcy.
